You may have thought that I wasn't going to do a post for December after my 2023 Year in review-post, but here I am!

December has mostly been about preparation for the holidays and the holidays. We have had visitors from afar, and we have been spending lots of time with family πŸ€—

Posts in December:

πŸ’ͺ Health

This has to be the laziest month all year. My only excuse was the weather, that I couldn't run because of the icy and slippery roads. But I can still run, I don't have to keep the same pace. Like everyone else, I'm going to turn up the frequency for January 2024! I have a half-marathon coming up January 20th 2024, so I need to get running again ASAP!

πŸ§‘β€πŸ’» Website

I sunset my digital garden, previously /garden. I came to the conclusion that I don't want to keep "notes" up-to-date in more than one place. And I want my blog to serve the purpose of what I was using my "digital garden" for.

Also made it possible to request JSON from my web pages and blogposts, ie.:

curl --header "Accept: application/json" http://localhost:8000/privacy

And now I can commit my draft-posts without them appearing on my production website, so for those curious you can browse my source code to see if I have any posts cooking.

And last, but not least, I revamped my Feedroll (blogroll) with all the feeds I follow using RSS. I found out that I can access the OPML-file from NetNewsWire directly on my machine. So my update-workflow will be to simply use cp <path-to-opml> ./static/api/feeds.opml.

🎬 Entertainment

TV

I stopped watching Monarch: Legacy of monsters S1 after episode 4 because the acting of the main characters became so bad and rushed. And also stopped watching Platonic S1 because it became really boring after three episodes.

Movie

  • Klaus (2019) – A really fun Christmas-movie! I never knew I needed a Santa Claus origin story.
  • Leo (2023) – Such a delight of a animated movie. Good humor and voice acting!
  • Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget (2023) – Very good! I still remember the original like it was yesterday!
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem (2023) – Awesome animated movie! The pacing and story was really good. And the animation was impressive, I was expecting more of the same style as the Spider-Verse movies, but this felt much more comicbook-like.

And I just realized that I've only watched animated movies this month πŸ˜… And they were all good!
